Located in beautiful Cancun, Mexico, The Royal Sands Resort is in the heart of any beach lover’s paradise. There is plenty of fun in the sun and night life, which makes Cancun a top destination spot for spring breakers. The Royal Sands made Redweek.com’s Top 25 Timeshare Rental Resorts list for 2018 and no wonder!

But this area of Mexico is also rich in ancient history and a great place to stay and experience authentic Mexican culture. Let’s take a look at some things you can do and see to get a taste of the real Mexico.
Explore Mayan Ruins
The Mayan ruins of Tulum, 80 miles south of Cancun, are the only major Mayan site to overlook the Caribbean. Containing more than 60 structures, this area was inhabited after 1200 B.C. and is considered to be one of the most important ceremonial centers to the Mayan people. The location on the Caribbean Sea made Tulum a major Mayan trade center. Be sure to check out El Castillo, a pyramid perched atop a 40 foot cliff, thought to be a lighthouse to guide local seafarers.
Explore an Eco-archaeological Park
While definitely for the tourists, a great way to learn about local culture and heritage is at a theme park! At Xcaret you can experience pre-Hispanic dances, visit archaeological sites, take river tours, and feast on authentic Mexican cuisine. There is snorkeling, as well as a “meet the dolphins” attraction. Stop by the Hacienda Henequenera, a 19th century mansion where you can learn about machinery used for henequen (a variety of agave). The Hacienda Henequenera is also at the doorstep of the Museum of Mexican Folk Art, a place to enjoy hand crafted traditional Mexican art.
These are just a couple of ways to explore Mexico and learn more about its Mayan roots.
